On June 23, 2022, The Spokesman-Review reported on Greater Spokane Incorporated’s launch of the THRIVE Spokane economic development plan. SP3NW was mentioned as a part of GSI’s efforts to address “workforce trends and challenges, supply-chain issues, boosting innovation and the need for small business resources, among other things.”
The Spokesman reported: “The presence of Washington State University’s Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine and UW School of Medicine in Spokane has generated new partnerships and technology, prompting a need for a startup incubator, said Michaele Armstrong, associate director of Sp3nw, a Spokane-based early stage life science business incubator.
“Sp3nw launched in 2020 and since then it has helped launch more than 45 health-and-life sciences startups. It has also drawn interest from companies that have relocated to Spokane from California, Kentucky and West Virginia, she said.”
